Top Spot of the Week: NBA's "Jingle Hoops"
Ushering in the season of holiday cheer are six NBA stars decked out in this year's Special Edition Xmas Day Uniforms: Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, James Harden, Steve Nash and LeBron James. They play a unique musical rendition of "One-Horse Open Sleigh" through virtuoso, choreographed three-point shots punctuated by an alley-oop exclamation point. Jonathan Klein of O Positive directed for Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.
